Sling Shot Gear from Rogue – Overview
The Sling Shot is a bench press accessory device for all lifters so they can add pounds to their bench press, help lift through injuries, and support sound technique. The Sling Shot was conceived by world-class powerlifter Mark Bell (545LB raw bench, 854LB equipped bench) to allow lifters to bench more weight safely and without pain. It is easy to put on, easy to use, and will help keep correct form.[caption id="attachment_26744" align="alignnone" width="1024"] Rogue Sling Shot Shake Strap Adapter with a user 2
It is appropriate for lifters of all ages and strength levels. You can decide which Sling Shot® is best for you by your one-rep max. If your bench is less than 315 lbs, it is advised to start with the Reactive Sling Shot®. You can advance to the Original or Full Boar once you press 315 lbs raw.
Original Sling Shot
Take about a 10% overload in the bench press with the Original Sling Shot. You can do this while avoiding the pain that comes with pushing your body.
It simulates natural muscle movement by lengthening and shortening the muscles, thus reinforcing a bench press’ eccentric and concentric phase. This effect can considerably lower strain on the shoulders, elbows, and chest.
Reactive Sling Shot
The Reactive Sling Shot will work for a lifter who benches 75LB to someone who wants to bench 600. This Sling Shot will not hamper your form in any way but will improve it. Even if you are a beginner, you will be able to slide it on and enjoy moving heavier weights right away.
The Reactive Sling Shot is more pliable, flexible, comfortable, and easier to put on than the Original Sling Shot. It enables you to train pain-free so you can focus on the weights and not on the pain your shoulders and elbows feel.
Sling Shot Hip Circle
The Sling Shot Hip Circle presents Level 2 resistance, excellent for activating the glutes and the whole lower body. You can place the durable elastic band above both knees during a warm-up walk, be it forward, backward, or side-to-side movements. This will strengthen your hip abductors and external rotators while training better form and alignment for your squats and deadlifts.
You can also wear the Hip Circle during the lift itself to help support your knees correctly pushed out and lower probable injury risks. The Sling Shot Hip Circle measures 3″ in width and is an excellent option to traditional mobility bands for this type of training, as it won’t slide or slip during use and won’t stick to your skin or rip your leg hair out.
STrong Knee Sleeves – Pair
Battle-tested by leading strength athletes and refined into its present form, the STrong Knee Sleeves provide constant support through heavy sets without losing comfort or freedom of movement. It is specially developed for the needs of the strength athlete and is a 7MM thick neoprene compression product.
The sleeves are seamless on the front and back and maintain the same general, mild-compression feel as a light wrap. The Level 3 Neoprene makes a firm, contoured fit that thwarts movement of the sleeve and allows you to keep them on through an entire workout.
STrong Elbow Sleeves
The STrong Elbow Sleeve is a new single-seam compression sleeve offering consistent forearm, bicep, and elbow support. It has no skin irritation and provides freedom of motion.
These 5MM thick, Level 3 neoprene sleeves were tried and tested by some of the world’s most adorned Strongmen and Powerlifters, with many reporting getting more “pop” out of bottom overhead movements.
Sling Shot Tricep Shake Strap
The Sling Shot Tricep Shake Strap is made from durable 2” wide nylon webbing and 2″ wide double-ply stretch material. It is devised to fasten to a cable machine through the D-ring at the top.
The two-strap handles measure 9” in length, and highlight sewn-in thick foam padded grips. The overall length of the whole strap (when laid flat) is 21.5”.
Sling Shot Single Hand Shake Strap
The Sling Shot Single Hand Shake Strap is created from 2” wide double-ply stretch material with a length of 21.5”. A D-ring at the top allows uncomplicated attachment to a cable machine, and the 9” long foam-padded handle provides a tight grip.
The patent-pending design utilizes Sling Shot material that extends to provide a greater range of motion compared to standard attachments. The stretch of the material forms a banded feeling for a more significant “pump”, enabling greater muscle contraction and better core stabilization.
Sling Shot Shake Handle Attachment Pair
The Sling Shot Shake Handle Attachment Pair is made from 1.5” wide double-ply stretch material with an O-ring at the top for attaching to a cable machine.
The attachment measures 11.5” in height with a 5.5” long handle and your selection of a standard grip (1.2” diameter) or thick grip (1.5” diameter).

There is an included carabiner at the other end that enables a fast and safe connection to your current attachments. The overall length of the entire strap (carabiner included) is 10.5”.
